I have the accuweather app on my galaxy s5. It came factory installed. I think it's a great weather app. But it is full of adds, just like all the others!
I live in the US.
Let me tell you what i did!
I went on line and found the national weather service website and added it to my quick access page. when i want add free weather, i just tap internet, that brings up quick access. Then tap the proper icon and i get not only the current weather conditions but i also get a very good current radar loop for my area.
And i can change the preferences to anywhere in the country
There are no adds because it is a government website. And i don't use any extra storage by installing a new app! And it only uses your battery when you open the internet!
If you live in the states give it a try.
If you live in a different country check on line, your country may have a similar website!
I hope that helps!

You can use Yahoo weather, quite interesting app for weather forecasting.

Using yahoo weather app is a good idea, but you would be using more storage space. And taking in consideration how inaccurate yahoo is with thier news stories, how accurate would thier weather forecast be! and the fact that they allow advertisers to monitor your web activity in real time! I would rather use the National Weather Service!
After all, thats where the TV weather forecast comes from!
